Default Re: Serious as a heart attack - a rant

I had a heart attack in 2007 right after Thanksgiving. I got 4 stents. I not only gig frequently, in a few weeks I am going to run my 6th marathon. All of the previous 5 were after the heart attack. I ran my last in 4:01:36 (damn 97 seconds from a sub-4)! Basically, if you get your arteries cleared in the cath. lab. and keep them clear by taking your statin drugs and exercising, you are far better off than someone who has latent heart disease. You got it off your chest, so now go play your gig and have fun! :)
